>> this is 7news now. >> christa: good morning. middle of the week. fcialgly wednesday. we're good to go for "today in new england." >> sarah: breaking news overseas. at least 19 people are dead after a gunman opened fire on a university in pakistan. a student and teacher are among the dead. the taliban is taking responsibility. >> christa: also breaking overnight, closer to home, a deadly fire in scituate. the fire marshal says man died inside this house last night. officials also say the home was filled with clutter, presenting some problems for fire crews. >> sarah: thousands of students returning to class this morning after about a dozen massachusetts schools were the target of bomb threats yesterday. the f.b.i. is now investigating where those calls came from.
talking has started. the broncos calling out tom brady. what they're accusing him of doing on the field. it's only a matter of time, right? can't keep their mouths zipped for too long, right? >> sarah: let's get a check of the forecast with chris lambert. we're all watching that snow. >> chris: we're watching the pats for the weekend, like t.b. 12 needs any more motivation out good morning, everyone. the wind speeds this morning, they're still active, just not morning. wind-chill factor minus 3 in worcester. 5 in boston. 10 in norwood. the winds sustained at about 15 to 20mph, occasionally seeing higher gusts closer to 30. yesterday gusting close to 50. so we've backed off slightly, but still 30, 35mph wind gusts. it's a cold breeze out there. temperatures this afternoon about 5 to 6 degrees warmer than yesterday afternoon. so it will be a cold breeze for the kiddos heading out there at lunchtime.
up to about 3 degrees -- 30 degrees this afternoon. what about the weekend storm? there is no question there will be a powerful ocean storm, coastline. the highest risk for heavy snow and powerful winds will be across the mid atlantic, baltimore down through d.c., back into northern virginia. a lot of coastal flooding from new jersey points south, as well. for us for the heavy snow risk, it's slighter because it's going to be a sharp cut-off and that track will be critical to how far north some of the heavier snow goes. for the timing of snow, if indeed it does work in here, it would be saturday afternoon, saturday night into sunday morning, and again the track critical to determining the amount of snow we get. i think regardless there is enough wind generation that we may have some minor coastal flooding at minimum, so we'll have to keep an eye on that. more on the forecast as "today in new england" starts right now. >> christa: breaking news first at 5:00 a.m. violence erupting at a university in pakistan.
